After a very busy summer and fall, our building challanges are complete. The building received a non-compliance notice from the City of Rochester for a “Certificate of Occupancy” (this was never needed before). We made contact with Gil Mastrangeli, contractor and past parishioner/school alumni from Sts. Peter and Paul Parish. He worked with the building inspector to help us comply with the ordinance, yet kept our costs very low. We are so grateful to him. We also wish to thank Sean Rivera and his Boy Scout Troup in conjunction with Gil, who sealed the entire outside of our building for his Eagle Scout Project. This was necessary as the water leakage was disintegrating our interior walls. Gil also helped the scouts fashion new window sills on the parking lot side of the building to slant the water away from the windows.
This past week Oct. 12-16 was our yearly cleaning week. Many volunteers helped clean ovens, paint bathrooms and newly primed resurfaced walls, waxed dining hall floor, cleaned and shined shelves, racks and serving centers. Special thanks to Don, Randy and Ron for removing an outdated cooler unit. We really appreciate all of your help. The Macedon Men’s Club (Larry, Ted, Bill, Tom and Tony) for painting our bathrooms and dining hall. To Bob for fixing toilets, contouring our serving center and replacing our worn out spray faucet in the kitchen. Thanks to Jane, Pat, Marge, Mary and the Mercy 7th graders who cleaned, cleaned and cleaned some more. John T. and John S. for scouring the ovens and racks. And the staff here at St. Pete’s too…we worked hard. What a week! But we look good for this next year. Thanks to all.
